Forewind's development consent order application for the first stage of offshore wind energy development on the Dogger Bank Zone has been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate. The application for Dogger Bank Creyke Beck comprises two offshore wind farms with a total installed capacity of up to 2.4 GW. Statkraft is one of four partners in the Forewind consortium.
Biologist and senior environmental advisor at Statkraft, Bjørn Iuell, believes the contrast between black and white might prevent birds from flying into wind turbines. New knowledge from the Smøla wind farm will set the standard for environmentally friendly wind energy in the future.
Athletes from across Scotland ran up a first for the sport at the weekend when they competed in the first and only 10-kilometre course at a Highland wind farm. The race marked the opening of Statkraft's 52.5 MW Baillie Wind Farm.
